“Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, and “Walk Like a Man” are just some of the sweet sounds you will hear from Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of the Tony Award-winning musical Jersey Boys. It tells the story of the four young men from the wrong side of the tracks in New Jersey who came together to form the iconic `60s rock group The Four Seasons.
The first trailer is here for your viewing pleasure; I don’t know if this was what I was expecting or not, but the speaking into the camera from the actors was a little surprising. I understand that’s a nod from the stage musical, so it might add a little something to an otherwise typical musical biopic. After this though, can the darker and more broody Eastwood come out and play again?
The film stars John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda, and Christopher Walken.
Jersey Boys opens in theaters on June 20th, check out the poster and trailer below:
If you’re a fan of the original Leprechaun movies (all six of them), then you may or may not be happy to see they are rebooting the beloved franchise. You can’t see me, but I laughed while typing that. The horror icon is back and this time WWE’s very own Hornswoggle, taking over for Warwick Davis in Leprechaun: Origins.
I don’t know if this will be direct-to-DVD but the film has been described “a dark, hard-R horror film” and is expected to be released in August. An official poster has made its debut which you can check out below along with a classic clip from the first Leprechaun movie, starring Jennifer Aniston. Stay tuned for a trailer.
Fox released eight new posters for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and they are exactly what you would expect at this point. The most recent poster, which you can also check out below, was something you would find on a really bad deviantART page. I don’t know what happened here or who’s in charge, but these are garbage. To top it all off, Hugh Jackman’s name is the only name on posters where he isn’t even featured!
In the movie we find Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) who has his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants [watch the latest trailer].
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in 2D and 3D on May 23rd.
Here is a trailer for Sex Tape, an unofficial sequel to Bad Teacher if you want. I say that because it’s from the same director and stars Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a couple who discover that their “sex tape” has accidentally been uploaded to the cloud (ugh) on all the iPads they gave away as gifts and try to delete the said video.
At least it’s rated-R, otherwise this movie looks pretty terrible. Who’s giving out iPads as gifts if you’re not part of a movie that’s advertising iPads in every shot? The jokes are stale (of course there’s a security dog), much like this movie will be in a few years when the technology they are touting is old hat. Not every movie is meant to be remembered and re-watchable I suppose, but the good news for this movie is that I’ll watch anything with Rob Corddry.
Sex Tape opens on July 25th, watch the trailer below:
The 60′s Mighty Hercules cartoon is magical, but sadly not on topic today. We have the first images from Brett Ratner’s Hercules which is “a revisionist take on the classic myth set in a grounded world where the supernatural does not exist”. It’s the second Hercules movie this year, but something tells me this one won’t bring the suck as much.
The story takes place after Hercules’ famous 12 labors, and has him “traveling with a group of mercenaries and cashing in on his famous name until he’s hired to train an army for an epic battle”. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars and tells USA Today, “The No. 1 goal is to make the definitive version of Hercules. We know we’re going to be under a microscope.”
He’s certainly built for the role; did you see Pain & Gain? He’s a beast! The film also stars Joseph Fiennes, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joe Anderson, Peter Mullan, and Rufus Sewell.
Hercules opens July 25th, check out the first poster and pics below:
If you watched Teen Wolf last night (anyone? Bueller?) then you probably saw the first trailer for Wes Ball‘s adaptation of The Maze Runner. The story goes that a group of good looking glistening teens appear in an area known as “The Glade” but have no memory when they wake up. The only way out is through a maze of massive walls, probably by running too if the title tells us anything.
The movie stars Dylan O’Brien, Patricia Clarkson, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, and Ki Hong Lee. Here is a more official synopsis:
Based on the young-adult novel by James Dashner, “The Maze Runner” centers around teen Thomas (O’Brien), who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is. What he does come to find out is that he’s been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a slew of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth — all the while establishing a functioning society within the enclosure they’ve come to call “The Glade.”
The Maze Runner opens September 19. Watch the trailer below:
Fire is hot you see, and there is a lot of fire in the poster, that’s all I meant. Anyways, here’s a new poster for director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Olsen. The film also stars Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, Ken Watanabe, and David Strathairn.
Check out the impressive trailer we posted here, Godzilla opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on May 16th. The synopsis reads:
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.
So basically monster goes smash.

We showed you an unofficial trailer last month for David Gordon Green’s new drama, Joe about a relationship that forms between troubled Joe (Nicolas Cage) and an abused teen (Tye Sheridan). There is now an official trailer and release date for the great looking character dram that you can check out below along with the full synopsis. The movie looks great and Cage has never looked better, I can’t wait to check it out.
Joe opens in theaters and on VOD on April 11th, watch the trailer below:
This was meant to be I think; having just watched The Purge for the first time last week and hating it more than any movie I’ve seen in a very long time, I knew I would be the one to post this trailer for the money grabbing sequel.
James DeMonaco’s sequel The Purge: Anarchy keeps the same “plot” device as all crimes are legal on one day of the year, during the annual “Purge”, which preserves peace and prosperity for the other 364 days of the year. The first movie had so many plot holes, bad acting, bad writing, laughable exposition…sigh, I’m still tired. I will give the sequel this, it’s a pretty cool trailer. Then again, the whole idea here is awesome and was wasted once so what do I know anymore.
The Purge: Anarchy opens in theaters on June 20th, watch the trailer below:
Here is a full theatrical trailer director Denis Villeneuve’s (Prisoners) upcoming thriller Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal. In the flick, Gyllenhaal discovers that he has a double, whom he eventually tracks down and engages, resulting in “a complex and dangerous struggle”. Well if they were trying to pull off a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller, they certainly did it by the looks of things.
The film also stars Melanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, and Isabella Rossellini. Enemy debuts exclusively on DirecTV February 6th followed by a theatrical release on March 14th.
ENEMY tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Gyllenhaal) who is nearing the end of a relationship with his girlfriend Mary (Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down Anthony, an actor living with his pregnant wife Helen (Gadon) and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle.
